Diner Week is going strong and today we’re looking at the Copper Skillet in Killingworth. This family-owned diner has been open for 24 years but absolutely beloved by the Killingworth community.
“We’ve been here a long time,” said owner Bill Panagopoulos. “We’ve watched the town grow and get bigger and with it so has our menu.”
So what’s the secret to staying popular for 24 years?
“I think it’s the consistency, said Panagopoulos. “It’s me and my brother, we’re always here. So we’re always the ones doing the cooking, so our food is pretty consistent. I think that’s what people like the most.”
“It’s friendly, it’s happy, it’s family,” said Marty Slade, a Killingworth resident and tegular customer. “And the food’s good.”
“You’re comfortable here,” said Panagopoulos. “It’s a small place. People are comfortable and it’s fun. You get good service, fast service and friendly, so we like to think that makes us different.”
